HC Deb 08 November 1928 vol 222 c227W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that foreign tinned milk is supplied to Navy, Army, and Air Force canteens; and will he consider the desirability of these canteens being supplied with British-manufactured tinned milk?


I am informed that in order to meet a demand from their customers, the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes at present supply some foreign tinned milk. This is a matter of the trading administration of the institutes which I do not control in any way. But I have recently decided that the attention of Commanding Officers shall be drawn to the desirability, in making purchases from the Navy, Army and Air Force institutes, of giving preference to goods of British origin.
